Healthy, Easy Flourless Chocolate Cake

The below recipe is both easy and delicious!  My little guy loves helping out with this in the kitchen.  I do make one small modification to the below recipe.  I mash up a ripe avocado and use that instead of coconut oil.  Enjoy!


Healthier Flourless Chocolate Cake

Prep time:  15 mins
Cook time:  25 mins
Total time:  40 mins
Serves: 16
A rich, fudge-like cake sure to satisfy any chocolate cravings.
  • 4 oz. unsweetened baking chocolate
  • 3 whole eggs
  • ½ cup grass-fed butter, or coconut oil
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • ¾ cup honey
  1. Preheat the oven to 375F, and grease an 8″ spring-form pan generously with coconut oil or butter.
  2. Melt the baking chocolate and butter together, stirring until completely smooth. (You can use a double-boiler for this, but I prefer to simply throw the chocolate into an oven-safe bowl, and melt it in the oven for about 4-5 minutes.)
  3. Combine the melted chocolate/butter with the cocoa powder, honey, and eggs, then whisk well until a smooth batter forms.
  4. Pour the batter into the greased pan, and smooth the top with a spatula.
  5. Bake at 375F for 20-25 minutes, until the center looks firm. Allow to cool in the pan for 15 minutes, then remove the sides (this is why I like using the spring-form pan!) and allow to cool completely before serving.
This makes a less-sweet, dark chocolate cake. If you’d like it to be a little sweeter, I’d recommend using 70% dark chocolate instead of the unsweetened baking chocolate. ©
